The Discovery Research Prekindergarten-12 program (DRK-12) seeks to significantly enhance the learning and teaching of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by prekindergarten through grade 12 students and teachers, through research and development of innovative resources, models and tools. The intent of the program is to catalyze new approaches to STEM learning, develop students’ twenty first century STEM skills, and provide multiple pathways and resources in a variety of learning environments to study the learning process itself. Projects should be framed around fundamental research in STEM education and prior research and development efforts that provide theoretical and empirical justification for proposed projects.
Deadline: Full proposals are due November 8, 2023.
